KCE Report 341 (2021)
Add-on to “Performance of the Belgian health system – report 2019”
This report is an add-on to a previous KCE report published in 2019 that assessed the performance of the Belgian health system (KCE Report 313).
This add-on discusses the opportunity to include projection based indicators, in addition to those based on historic data, to better assess the sustainability of the health system.
A conceptual framework is used to select relevant indicators in this context. Then projection-based indicators related to workforce and financing are analysed to complement the assessment of the performance of the health system. These indicators are aimed to provide warning signals of a future imbalance between demand and supply within the Belgian healthcare system.
